I was looking at some web statistics this morning and I noticed that I had quite a few hits on my DVD site coming from a forum at LDS Mingle. I was intrigued (mostly because I’m LDS) so I signed up temporarily to see what the talk was about. A member there suggested visiting DVD […]

It’s funny, these Al Qaeda missionaries get the same response that I would often get as a Mormon missionary. Funny stuff. Hopefully the people there knew it was a joke. I would the the camerman following them around might have given it away 😉 (The embeded video can be seen at Google Video) [tags]Al Qaeda, […]

So what if Nephi and his brethren did not return to Jerusalem and obtain the brass plates? What if they had no scripture, or records of their ancestors? Well, my guess is they would have become as the people in Zarahemla. The people of Zarahemla also came from Jarusalem, shortly after Lehi and his family […]

Oh the dreaded Jacob 5, 77 verses long! While growing up, I never quite understood this chapter. Even after a number of lessons in Sunday school and seminary. I think we spent a couple days in seminary talking about it and all I got out of it was what it meant to graft a branch […]

We teach 17-18 & Young Single adults in Sunday school. In order to spice up a Word of Wisdom lesson, my wife and I came up with these Jeopardy questions, er, answers. Word of Wisdom Jeopardy! Not good for the Body 100: In this scripture we’re commanded not to use tobacco. = What is Doctrine […]

I just purchased a Dell Axim X3i on Ebay. I decided to find out some more info after the fact. I came across this review on brighthand. The reviewer appears to be LDS 🙂 How do I know? Check out the Switcher Bar screenshot!

[The following is the talk I gave in church yesterday] As far as the gospel is concerned, faith is a very broad subject. There have been many talks given on the subject of faith. Faith has always been one of my favorite and most intriguing topics because, without faith, we can do nothing [D&C 8:10], […]

Strength and struggle go together. The supreme reward of struggle is strength. Life is a battle and the greatest joy is to overcome. The pursuit of easy things makes men weak. Do not equip yourselves with superior power and hope to escape the responsibility and work. It cannot be done. It is following the lines […]
